clinton and al gore in 2000 and bill clinton rescheduling to a few days before the new hampshire primary to try to give gore the boost over bradley. it mattered very much for clinton for gore to succeed him and gore did not. looking at barack obama's position here, the natural successor candidate for 2016 would be the vice president, joe biden, but it looks like he's sort of overshadowed here by another -- somebody else with a claim, as well. hillary clinton. how do you think that shakes snout who has the claim to be the sort of successor candidate going forward? >> well, the nice thing is they both do. you have an heir and a spare. you have a two good back-ups. and let's take thomas jefferson, because the presidents who have done this in the past are ronald reagan, franklin roosevelt, abe lincoln and thomas jefferson. thomas jefferson hands off power to his secretary of state james madison. so, both secretaries of state historically and vice presidents have been plausible successors. >> you know, in your advice to the president to make sure his second term is a success and not a failure

to bill clinton, george bush. and that is, obama fatigues. three years from now, people will be writing columns about obama fatigue, just as they did about clinton fatigue and bush fatigue and reagan fatigue. franklin roosevelt only gave 30 fireside chats in 12 years. he understood instinctively the dangers of overexposure. he also controlled the media to an extent that modern presidents could not hope to. host: looking back, fdr broke the unwritten code of serving more than two terms. he was elected to four terms. in today's modern age, could we have more than two terms for any president? guest: great question. >> you worked for ronald reagan. if his health was better, of course, would he have run for a third term? guest: i doubt it. he talked about it after he left office. he was going to campaign for appeal of that amendment. he thought the american people should be able to vote for anyone wanted to vote for. it is very difficult to imagine after eight years of office -- we've used up our presidents. that is why this string of two- term presidents is really so unusual. we have a stri

bill clinton wanted al gore to win. barack obama doesn't have that. the two front runners or maybe three, but two within his administration, whether bide own runs probably hinges on whether hilary runs. that doesn't seem to be an extension of what he does today. is that right? >> i think that's wrong. i have my own take on it. i have my own system to predicting elections. it's called the dees the white house. and it's how well think party holding the white house has governed, whether or not the sitting president is running again. so if barack obama wants to extend -- which is very difficult, have three democratic presidents in a row, it is all going to depend on his success in governing and leading the country. if he is success, and comes out as a very popular president who has achieved something, then there's an excellent chance that the democrats are capture another term in the white house. if he doesn't. if he leaves as a failed president like george w. bush, then we'll get a change in party power in 2016 and this is true regardless of the identity of the
in the pantheon of liars with anthony weiner and john edwards and even bill clinton. i guess bill clinton only person give him any hope because did he rehabilitate image. start this bicycle company with anthony weiner in new york city. that's his only hope he didn't help himself at all last night i don't think. >> bill: gutfeld, do you forgive him on a personal level? that's our poll question. i will read it to you in a minute. >> as you know, i follow professional cycling so personally. i feel professionally portrayed. of course not. i'm like most of america. i don't care about cycling. no but you wrote a book called the joy of hate. i just wanted to know if that carried over in this category and apparently it does. >> it does. i hate everything. >> we have more with gutfeld and mcguirk and my apologies. i do that every week. we also have a bill o'reilly.com poll question as i mentioned. are you ready to forgive lance armstrong for doping and lying? personal have any yes or no. i will give you the results on monday. factor tip of the day. me on the view. you have got to see this. we're coming

individually. some are, obviously, heavier lifts, as they say, than others. what bill clinton did back in 1994 when he got an assaults weapons bill passed is included it in a gigantic crime bill, so a lot of governors wanted that. it had the expansion of the federal death penalty, some wanted to see that. it was part of a larger scheme. you don't see that coming to task here the way things are playing out now, but i think, certainly, high-capacity magazines probably have a better chance than an assault weapons ban. a gun trafficking law, well, who's against going after gun traffickers? it's common sense, as we said. i think there's a lot that can play out here, and probably a way for harry reid and other centrists -- he's not a centrist, but other democrats to sort of find stuff in this they like and have big victories, and one victory can lead to another. >> it's important what david just said, the fact that the white house is proposing a series of measures, and i've talked to democrats on capitol hill who say what we'll probably want to do is pursue some bills that can attract some bipartisa
a decade ago to when bill clinton was president and the government did shut down. who got the blame for that? it was congressional republicans. and that's why it's interesting that congressional republicans this time around taken such a hard line saying we're ready to go and let the government default if we don't get more spending cuts. >> what do you think is the strategy there looking at history and not very distant history, shira? >> i think that's, frankly, all republican haves to bargain with at this point. they're bargaining and when the president was at the podium today he essentially said your move, congress. come up with the next idea. but generally, that's all they have. they have the majority in the house. and in that case, it's not a very controlled caucus. it's a very fractured caucus. democrats controlling the senate and the white house. they don't have a good bargaining position here again. all they can do is appeal to the base and american people they want more spending cuts. >> jimmy, congresswoman morris, a republican quoted on politico saying i think it's possible
with the whole idea of new democrats, that was bill clinton, a governor. and even with george bush, the same thing, a governor, compassionate conservatives. i think ideas about rebranding a party and a party's direction rarely come out of the house. and you hear how the house gop that doesn't look very much like america, it's largely southern, very white, and very male. so it will be interesting to see what comes out of these meetings. >> let's speak to a white male. steve, pollsters aren't the only ones giving the republicans advice on how to improve their image. here is former secretary of state general colin powell. take a listen to him. >> i think the republican party right now is having an identity problem, and i'm still a republican. i think what the republican party needs to do now is take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country has changed. the country is changing demographically and if the republican party does not change along with that demographic, they're going to be in trouble. >> steve, senator marco rubio has fired back immediately, and he points out that th
our way up to the top. bill clinton out in california saying, you think i am in good health? you ought to see hillary. >>nu number 5. >> she has always been very health, very low pressure very low standing heart beat. i tell her she has time to have three more husbands after me. >> you go, girl. line them up. but not until i am gone. president obama at the news conference we had with him this week, he was asked about the fact that he has a reputation for being such a stuffed shirt, and he says, what? me? >> number 4. >> most people who know me know i am a pretty friendly guy. and i like a good party. >> i like a good party. in fact, he went out last night with michelle obama, his wife for her 49th birthday, had a good party at cafe milano. jon stewart has some things to say about lance armstrong and all of the faith that some of us put into lance armstrong, even wearing that dumb bracelet. >> number 3: >> i believed nu-lance armstrong armstrong. i space -- i shelled out a dollar for a rubber let. i did it for you. when i think of the fact that i
, to be understood deeply, and to be not so very lonely. >> and former president bill clinton surprised everyone when he came out to salute "lincoln." in the end they laughed, they cried, and, of course, the party continues. >> good night. we're going home with jody foster. >> it was a good show. it was also a good night for ben affleck who seemed genuinely shocked at both his win for best director and the win for "argo" for best drama. we'll have to see if the momentum for "argo" carries over to the oscars in the best picture race. something audiences didn't see happened back stage in the press room after "django unchained" writer and director quinton terramtino. it has come under scrutiny for its liberal use of the n-word, and terrintino was candid in his response about why he used it so much. >> if somebody is out there saying it when it comes to the word [ bleep ], that the fact that i was using it in the movie more than it was used back in the antebellum south in 1858 in mississippi, then had he might have -- then feel free to make that case, but no one is actually making that case. >> now, ther
. >> former president bill clinton has been getting more questions these days about his wife hilary's future including the 2016 presidential race and her health. >> she's always been very, very healthy and she has very low blood pressure, very low standing heart beat. i tell her she still has time to have three more husbands after me. whenever i'm stubborn about something in our contact quest at my self-improvement she refers to me as her first president. >> and a reminder that msnbc will have all day coverage monday of president obama's second inauguration. and that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. >>> now for a look at the national weather we turn to meteorologist bill karins. good morning. >> some good one liners in there. very entertaining. not fun later today. the deep south your first snow event of the season is coming your way. we have winter storm warnings in pink covering much of the state of virginia, north carolina, central alabama and central portions of mississippi. a little sliver of northern portion of georgia. you can see the movement the storm is taking. right now
actor. and it was actually introduced by none other than former president bill clinton, who just kind of a weird time in our movie culture right now. >> well, the golden globes are done by the hollywood foreign press, and they love movies about international politics. now, maybe "lincoln" was too american for them. the only award they gave was to the british actor who played abe lincoln. even movies like "salmon fishing in the yemen," which i actually saw, had to do with foreign politics. "les mis"had to do with french politics. bill clinton was a big get, even bigger than jennifer lopez. they didn't want to spring for obama, but they got a pretty good guy. he requires a lot of perks in the dressing room, i can only imagine. >> michael. >> he's a total professional. he was barely looking at the prompter. he knew his lines. he was much better than the inebriated people, like the guy pretending to be high and said lisa dunham instead of lena dunham. >> the worst was salma hayek, her prompter went down. she and the actor with her, paul rudd, they totally forgot what they were going to do
because of his support and bill clinton's support for gun control measures including the assault weapons ban. other democrats began to say the same thing. well, that gave the nr afar more power than deserved. i didn't believe it was true then and i don't believe. >> west virginia, kentucky, tennessee that's where he was finding his problems, right? >> where republicans win anyway. the people who vote for republicans. in those states are not going to vote for a democrat. it doesn't matter what he does. >> i'm not going to argue except on these points of electoral college votes. it used to be we got arkansas the democratic side. west virginia was consistently -- anyway, the guys on the far right here. fear factor. kentucky senator rand paul wants to run for president is concerned the president has a king complex. and paul is out there vowing to nullify any executive orders that impede on congressional powers which by the way has not happened. we used the word nullification, you're talking civil war here. let's watch. >> in our founding fathers were very concerned about having a separation
is bill clinton out there at the golden globes last night being brought on stage to thunderous standing ovations to talk about lincoln and what he did during -- what did lincoln do? as far as these people are concerned, he wiped out the south. but he didn't finish, so what the left is admitting today that they are doing is once -- trying to finish it off. lincoln did not fully finish. they're all focused on gods and guns in the south. they love both of them. and so the south has to be wiped out again. i'm telling you, essentially there is an all-out effort being made to marginalize conservatism. >> reminds me of radio rwanda in the bad old days. it's been far right republicans obviously doing all the civil war talk. they're the ones talking about the civil war, about nullification of federal laws and all the ses session petitions out there. before house republicans head off for their annual retreat this week, i think it's in williamsburg, the democratic congressional campaign committee offered up some suggestions for planned activities and classes. how to stop talking about legitimate r
any movement on this issue? >> it is a very difficult heavy lift, chris. you think back to when bill clinton tried this in 1993. he had a large major etan of democrats in the -- majority in the house of representatives and was barely able to get anything done and now, of course, the republicans control the house of representatives. and you put your finger on it the opponents of taking additional steps tend to be much better organized and better funded. my guess is most of the action in the regulatory arena and the administration will look to see what they can do on their own absent much prospect for legislation. >> chris: i want to broad then legislation. mr. weather iwhether it is the fiscal cliff or gun control or a major immigration reform movement by the president. he seems to be as he prepares for his inaugural a more combative president, more confrontational and less interested even in the beginning in compromise. one, do you agree? and two, what does that say to you about prospects for his second term? >> i think it is interesting because the president was elected in '08 by a
holiday, the last time 1997, the second inauguration of president bill clinton. special things the president is going to do on monday, he is going to be using one of martin luther king jr.'s traveling bibles to take the oath of office on, also use a bible that belonged to president lincoln on loan from the library of congress. you know who be giving the invocation? merely evers-williams, the widow of slain civil rights leader medgar evers. >> athena jones joining us live from washington. >> thanks. >>> nearly 30 years since a woman from new york has won miss america. >> your new miss america is -- miss new york! >> there she is, 23-year-old mallory hagen accepting the crown at the miss america pageant in las vegas last night. she tap danced to james brown's "get up off that thing." there were no meltdowns, there were a few firsts. miss iowa let the audience know she has tourette's syndrome and one comment she made is getting a lot of attention on the web. >> i personally know people who have had to go to medical marijuana for their last -- their last resort for their health car
me. >> bill clinton with dr. nancy snyderman. good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington, where president obama is trying to mobilize the nation, all of us, to deal with gun violence. >> from the letter that julia wrote me, she said, i know that laws have to be passed by congress, but i beg you to try very hardly. julia, i will try very hard. >> and joining me now for our daily fix, chuck todd, nbc news chief white house correspondent and host of "the daily rundown" and host malia henderson. thank you very much, both of you. chuck, the atmosphere there at the white house as the president unveils this and the fact that he brought in families from newtown and children who had written to him, what is the white house hoping to gain as it takes on, probably, the biggest political fight of this second term? >> look, this wasn't a simple policy rollout, this was the launch of an emotional campaign, this was an emotional president, and he was using any possible tool he could have in order to try to launch a campaign, because the reality -- they know the reality of the big three proposal
. the richard newstat book about this, about the power of the presidency, it was kind of bill clinton's bible. obama seems to be moving forwards that away from the deal cutting. >> maria theresa, glen is talking long game, but in terms of the short game, the playbook seems to be one that he has used a lot in the last couple of months/year, i'll say, which is vault over congress and take it to the people and make them move however incrementally. the question is do we think is that can happen? can he have that kind of win on gun control 1234. >> he did exactly what he should have done. obama care, he said i'm going to go to washington, i'm going to go to capitol hill and negotiates inside, and people will come with me. what he is saying is he is basically drawing a clear line in the sand. this is where i stand. the american people, i'm going to -- i'm going to speak to you directly, and i'm going to go ahead and volley it over to the senate and they'll pass it. this is not my doing. >> hopefully they'll introduce it to the floor of the senate. that in and of itself will be -- >> i think the fac
, he is the one who started saying that he lost because of his support and bill clinton's support for gun control measures, including the assault weapons ban. other democrats began to say the same thing. well, that gave the nra far more power than it deserved. i didn't believe it was true then -- >> well, you have to look at west virginia, and west virginia, kentucky, tennessee, that's where he was finding his problems, right? >> where republicans win anyway. the people who vote for republicans in those states are not going to vote for a democrat. it doesn't matter -- >> okay. i'm not going to argue with you except on these points of electoral ledge votes. it used to be until recently we had arkansas, west virginia was a consistently democratic -- let's look at some of the guys on the far right. fear factor. kentucky senator rand paul who wants to run for president is concerned that the president has a king complex. and paul is out there vowing to nullify any executive orders that impede on executive powers, which by the way, has not happened. we used the word nullification. you'r
to when bill clinton tried it in 1993, a large majority of democrats in the house of representatives and was barely able to get anything done and now the republicans control the house of representatives and you put your finger on it, those taking additional steps, they are better organized and funded than the advocates and my best guess is most of the action here will be in the regulatory arena and the administration will look to see what they can do on their own, absent much prospect ultimately for significant legislation. >> chris: i want to broaden the conversation, because, whether the fiscal cliff or gun control, story of the day about a major immigration reform movement by the president, he seems to be, as he prepares for the inaugural, a more combative president, more confrontational, less interested even in the beginning in compromise. one, do you agree and, two, what does it say to you about prospects for his second term. >> i do and it is interesting. he was elected in by a more significant margin, notably more significant margin than he was reelected. he was not nearly the
lbj and trying to get drinks with -- how come you're not like bill clinton and not inviting mitch mcconnell and harry reid to camp david. how come you're not like ronald reagan and throwing back whiskey with tip o'neill. it is that stuff, as you've been noting and he pointed out, he does this but i think this is where there's a little bit of disconnect. i think there are people on the outside and look at what other presidents -- and say, why don't you do this more? the white house will say, guess what, people used to say the same thing about clinton and reagan. my guess is the truth's somewhere in between. it's not exactly as if the president uses his golf game to lobby members of congress, he doesn't. not as if he has a card game once a month he's bringing over the leader. he doesn't do things like that. is that part of the job description? >> the president said at the press conference yesterday, he has played golf with john boehner, does a good golf game. it didn't help in the negotiations. boehner keeps refusing invitations to multiple state dinners. there seems to be a problem wh
. >> she will definitely have time to rest up soon. that was bill clinton, of course, speaking today in california at his second annual conference entitled health matters, activating wellness in every generation. >>> are you the king of bleeding heart who goes fishing and ends up feeling sorry for the fish? i do. >> no. i don't. well, then you can share the outrage over a video that's getting more than a nibble. cnn's jeanne moos shows us why it's going viral. >> reporter: the fish were biting, all right. biting this guy's arm. though this looks like a fish eats man story, experts say it's really a tale of man molests fish. dr. aaron adams is an official of a tarpin conservation organization. the tarpin is so legendary, michelangelo painted one chasing jonah on the sealing of the sistine chapel. this is no chapel. it's the florida keys, famous as a place to hand feed the tarpins. if this video is from robby's, management wants nothing to do with it. an angry employee told us he is truly molesting that animal. tell me what is wrong with this video. >> oh, boy. where do i start. he stu
. the welfare reform program work. the greatest decrease in child poverty in america came under bill clinton with a republican congress in the late 1990's. that is just a fact. jeffrey is shaking his head. no, it is a fact. the lowest level of black children in poverty in history was 1997. you could make an argument that having a welfare system shift toward opportunity would work. >> i'm going to give you all the time you need. before that, what would you say then to those who read the "new york times" stories when they did to review 15 years after bill clinton's welfare to work program, that women and children were falling faster into poverty than anybody else? [applause] i too was the program that helped push them in there? were they wrong? -- it was that program that helped push them in there? were they wrong? >> yes, but let me carry you two steps further. i have been working with a former california assembly leader on a project state-by- state to get people out of prison if they are there for non-violent crimes, to get them brought back into society. you cannot discuss how we will solve
the deep end. and that's when bill clinton and like you said the dlc brought them together. here's the really disturbing thing. i remember, mike, back in 1995, a lot of people were talking about colin powell running for president. and i didn't want colin powell to run for president. he was a moderate. i was a conservative. but it wasn't the entire party and me against colin powell. like there were moderates in the center of the party. and we had this very positive give and take. >> what's happened? >> this tug. >> what's happened? >> the moderates in the party have collapsed. >> where are those voices coming from? >> i am now considered by a lot of the right-wing looneys to be a moderate, to be a, quote, rino. anybody that's listened to anything i've said on taxes, on the budget, on the fiscal cliff, i mean, i think my party made a horrible mistake on the fiscal cliff, and yes, i would stare at the president on a government shutdown and say, yeah, maybe shutting down the government's reckless, but you know what's even more reckless? continuing to spend the way you and harry reid
